|Infrared Conversations - Raymond Salvatore Harmon|
These seven tracks represent the output of a singular event in the development of Harmons work. Using two Palm 105 PDAs and a freeware program modified by Harmon the sonic tapestries in these works were created by the interaction of the two Palmtops. Communicating over their infrared ports the pieces evolved in a call and response style. Harmon would create a seed sound by touching the screen of one Palmtop and then the conversation between the two PDAs would begin...

|Something from Nothing - Raymond Salvatore Harmon|
Returning from a stay in Warsaw during the Winter/Spring of 2001 Harmon recorded these two pieces from found acoustic noises in his travels. Fields of White stretches out the earlier compositional style of Harmons work into a wall of disjointed and abstract noisescapes. The length of the piece allows the listener room in which to absorb the transient structure of microtonal frequencies and shifting layers of cutup sounds...

|Raymond Salvatore Harmon - Raymond Salvatore Harmon|
These dense electronic compositions outline the early minimal aspects of Harmon's work. Built upon layers of exaggeratedly slowed down environmental recordings each piece becomes a meditation on the mundane aspects of existence. Like soundtracks for the abstract film that is our lives; the three works remain the least improvised and yet most compelling of Harmons early electronic work. 1 - Cause We Couldnt Be Bother Otherwise 2 - Something I Wouldnt Talk About 3 - Trying To Be Alone on a Sunday ...

|Signs Without Meaning - Raymond Salvatore Harmon|
Almost beyond the self imposed boundaries of his other works these three compositions reflect the diverse interest in extended micro amplified tones that has left its mark on a handful of Harmons works. Three pieces of super elongated field recordings cut and pasted over each other to create an abyss of sonic exegesis.

|YHVH - Raymond Salvatore Harmon|
YHVH is a tool for transcendental expansion. Non-denominational, non specific (other than in name) to any religion, and free from figurative icons. Because the nature of the abstract imagery used in YHVH tends toward an interpretive logic, much like a Rorschach's Test, the imagery becomes personally interpretive. The mind attempts to force some logic on the shifting lights and darks and thus gives us access to the architecture of the subconscious...
